todAAy i AAM grAAteful & thAAnkful
we read The Doctor's Opinion (Alcoholics Anonymous) yesterday at my morning meeting. A few reminders ...
... "as part of his rehabilitation he commenced to present his conceptions to other alcoholics, impressing upon them that they must do likewise with still others." page xxv
... "the body of the alcoholic is quite as abnormal as his mind." page xxvi
... "that the phenomenon of craving is limited to this class (chronic alcoholic) and never occurs in the average temperate drinker." page xxviii
... "There are, of course, the psychopaths who are emotionally unstable. They are over-remorseful and make many resolutions, but never a decision." page xxx
I firmly believe in the power of the writings in this book. These words have helped to save the lives of countless humans and will continue to do so. For this reason, I think it's imperative for this alcoholic to attend meetings where these writings are discussed.
